An Enviable Life

I have absolutely no desire to be Kim or even Kate, but if I really wouldn't mind being Kelly. 

I think I have confused you..... so I'll elaborate.... I don't want to be Kim Kardashian or Kate Middleton, but I would very much like to be Kelly Fleming.

Who is Kelly Fleming, you might ask?

Kelly Fleming is the woman who gets to live in this beautiful home, in these beautiful surroundings, and, to crown it all, spends her days making wine! 

The owner of Kelly Fleming Wines built a French inspired house and winery in the beautiful Napa Valley region in 1998.

Both the home and winery are clad in ancient-looking limestone siding and topped with red-clay roof tiles imported from France. Both buildings have French terra-cotta floor pavers inside and out.


Kelly works closely with her daughter Colleen, running the business and handling much of the day to day work, while her son, Robert, handles sales and marketing.    

The interior of the house is quite simply furnished with neutral colours and some antique furniture and light fixtures in the mix. The overall impression is one of timeless good taste. 

Both the house and the winery feature oversized steel doors and windows that allow views onto the magnificent landscape beyond.

The kitchen is kept simple and uncluttered and has a wonderful flow to the outdoors.

The tasting room of the winery has an inviting feel and leads out onto a covered patio, again with a wonderful view.

So I think I would be very happy being Kelly. Do you want to be Kelly too, or are you more of a Kim or a Kate?

Till next time
